I have Internet Explorer 8 on Windows 7 Enterprise x86. Recently I've been experiencing problems opening a few webpages like youtube download sites. It opens a dialog with a progress bar saying that Internet Explorer has stopped working. Then the page which I was trying to view becomes a page with title Webpage Error. On the page it says:
Internet Explorer has closed this webpage to help protect your computer. A malfunctioning or malicious add-on has caused Internet Explorer to close this webpage.
I have no problem opening these pages in IE8 installed on my Server 2003 Enterprise or XP Pro (both x86). Is there a way to stop this happening?

There have been occurring issues like. Like, suddenly IE started displaying said message that 'IE has stopped working'
It can happen on heavy pages. Like while i was surfing to make an ad to sell used car, the problem occurred twice in IE, but no issues in chrome
Later on when i contacted the site owner - he did not expressed any awareness - He himself opened n put a demo version - which he was able to post
I got a reply later on to him from webmaster that it's neither the site issue and nor the browser issue
But - error can happen, depending on your system RAM, Internet speed, how many pages has one opened, is some page restricting the loading time. IE 8 is absolutely as good as Chrome. Point is on how many applications are you working at the same time

My system specs, how many pages opened, etc. are certainly not my problem. In my Windows 7 PC I have 2 GB RAM with Intel Core 2 Duo. Normal amount of applications like Lync 2010, Realtek, etc. run. Plus, only 3-4 tabs are open.
In my Server 2003, I have 501 MB RAM, Intel Pentium 4. Around 5-6 other applications which don't use much RAM and up to 5-6 other tabs are open there. The only problem there is not responding, which goes off when I wait a little. I cannot install other browsers, as the Windows 7 laptop is my mother's office laptop.

Try then cleaning up your system with some good anti virus
If the problem still persists - may upgrade to IE-9
Probably - this could be the last solution.. You may be wondering what if it reoccurs again . Lets hope - it should not. IE-9 is an upgraded version n i personally has not been facing any such issue in IE9 in recent past.

There are no malware on the laptop. Microsoft Forefront Client Security is set to automatically scan every 6 hours. I will try IE9
